Marking the General Hotel Management’s first foray into Europe, The Chedi Andermatt & Residences has debuted in the Swiss Alps with all the comforts of a five-star chalet and a sustainable design focus. Multi-disciplinary architecture firmÂ Denniston Architects, led Jean-Michel Gathy,Â executed both the traditional Swiss architecture and rugged but luxurious interiors. The timber facade and pitched roof matches the lodge-style furnishings including indoor-and-outdoor fireplaces, shutter windows, cozy throw blankets, and thick, woven rugs. Guests are greeted by a 30-meter check-in bar that doubles as a social space and drinks bar. The Chedi Andermatt houses 104 guest rooms, all featuring monochromatic Rubens-inspired murals in open-plan spaces. Seven dining venues await guests including haute Swiss cuisine and anÂ aprĂ¨s-ski bar. A spa with 10 treatment rooms compliments the 35-meter indoor pool and hydrothermal baths. While the hotel is already a destination within itself, the surrounding area will only blossom with time as a 18-hole golf course and shopping village are completed.
